User :   Hi,
This question is related to Pregnancy.
I got married in 2009. My last period was 8th feb 2011 (1st day). I have 26 day period cycle. We had unprotected sex on 26th feb, 2011. I would like to know is there any chances I being pregnant.
Also, I took contraceptive pill “unwanted 72” on Mar 1, 2011 (3 hours before to 72 hours).
Based on the ovulation period, I had already crossed it (it was on 20th Feb, 2011).
Please advise me.
